Self-Esteem, the Key-Element for Instigating Mid-life Renewal
Low self-esteem is the most common challenging
concern when reaching mid-life, a concern often
triggering many others.
Jean Mombourquette, psychologist,describes low
self-esteem as the inability for an individual
to recognize and appreciate himself as a unique
gifted individual - that holds abilities for
performing good deeds. As a result,this person
sees the world very negatively.
You are a precious gift of Life and Love! No
matter the outcome situation in which you
entered into this life, you are here for a
reason: to discover and to accomplish the
mission for which you are called.
Why do so many people feel worthless, not
belonging to anyone or anywhere in this time
The reason is simple:
They don't know themselves
They don't believe in themselves
They don't like themselves
They feel estranged in their own flesh and soul
How can you begin to appreciate life, to appreciate
others and discover your call of mission, if you
don’t believe in yourself?
From the moment of conception, you carry within you,
all the gifts and tools to help you discover and
realize this personal life mission - which is
not necessarily a job, by the way! I will elaborate
this in further details when I develop the theme:
Discover your Mission. For now, pay attention to
this potential hidden within you! Try to discover it!
Maybe you didn't even know you carried those
Let me share a personal analogy.
I am daughter of the Generation X or generation of
transition.(born in the early 1960’s) O.K.,I have
no more secrets...now you know how old I am!
(See the note on Generation X for more details)
In 1974, high school teachers warned us about the
transitional changes that we were about to encounter
in the near future – computers replacing people and
eliminating plenty of potential jobs.
In 1974, there were no computer classes available
in my High School, not even in 1980 - the year
I graduated! This is the generation trapped between
two different periods: the baby-boomer generation
and the computer-aged generation! You might even
be one of them!
I learned to use a computer for the first time in
1999 – I took an office administrative clerk course
for a year in 2003! Anyone having told me than,
that I would be building a website on mid-life
renewal someday was bound to receive a very ironical
smile and comment! Surprise!
Here I am,six years later, communicating this message
to you on a website - Thanks to Dr. Wayne W. Dyer and
his book:The Power of Intention - Learning to
Co-create Your World Your Way and this wonderful

Remember that mid-life is a time for new beginnings.
I can’t stress this often enough! As you journey in
instigating positive self-esteem, my dream for you
consists of inspiring you with hope, with confidence
and a little enthusiasm.
Do I see you smile!?!
Be positive, begin to dream...
Once upon a time...a person had an idea...a simple thought...this thought inspired a promising dream...
with faith, with hope and with persevering hard work,
this dream became real...
May this story become yours!
This generation found itself wedged in the corner in
the lower echelons of jobs with weaker wages, and,
besides having to negotiate with high property rates
transfered by the preceded Boomers. At the time when
Boomers first started to retire (Generation X
(now in the thirties) finally saw themselves given
a chance of advancement but the younger generation much
more trained in computer science and technology and
much younger in age benefit while this generation tries
to make ends meet.
